How to use later version Excel file in 4.0a?



My laptop, where I have created most of my Excel files, is sick. When I try
to open files in 4.0a on my PC, I am told that the file was created in a
later version. Since I can't get my Windows Professional to open
successfully, I can't save the files in a version which will work at 4.0a on
my PC while the laptop is out. Any ideas?

If you only want to print/view, you could download the Excel viewer.

Alternatively, without being able to open the files and save as a version
prior to 97 you are stuck as the format was changed at that point
